diligence and hard work. i will never use drugs. the chinese team is extremely strict on doping control. so i can assure you that it is not an issue with us. and women's gymnastics, the team finals happening right now. if the u.s. wins, it will be their first team gold since 1996. we'll keep you posted on that one. i want to go back to the swimming. the women's 200 meter freestyle happening in about two hours. 17-year-old american missy franklin, she is taking on the world record holder, that is fredricka pell greeny of italy. in men's swimming, michael phelps could win two medals today. first up, the 200 meter butterfly. if he pulls it off, he jumps back into the pool for the relay. if he wins both, he'll have a record 19 olympic gold medals. wow. zain has the best assignment ever. wish i was there. missy franklin this young american swimmer. there is a lot to her story and some of it involves a little embarrassment for nbc as well. tell us what happened. >> yeah, it was a bit of a messup on nbc's part. basically they aired a promo of her saying that she had won gold in her first time ever
embarrassment for nbc as well. tell us what happened. >> yeah, it was a bit of a messup on nbc's part. basically they aired a promo of her saying that she had won gold in her first time ever here at the olympics, 100 meter backstroke. i watched it. it was really an amazing race. she did so well. but that promo on nbc then aired right before the race itself. so anyone who tuned in would have actually knew what the result was before they could actually watch it. so there has been all this outrage and nbc, you're spoiling the olympics for people. and hash tag came up callcalled called #nbcfail and everybody is complaining about this. what is interesting to note is that if this had happened four years ago, tape delays wouldn't have become such an issue. in the world of social media, twitter and facebook, everyone is getting results instantaneously. so the whole delay is causing a real issue for so many people, but, suzanne, you can watch it live streamed on nbc's website. so that's one option. and another option is just to go on a twitter, facebook, social media diet. and the other is to come to lon
stores. he's on the phone with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> help us break down the stet lment. who is the real winner here? is it the retailer? >> unfortunately, it's not. the only winners are visa, mastercard and their banks. they have gotten a hall pass if this deal goes through. it's not a done deal. it's a proposal now. they have a hall pass to continue to raise their swipe fees without restraint and not have anybody be able to enforce the law against them. they have to be feeling good now. >> the swipe fee reduction is only for eight months. what could happen after that. it could go back up? >> i tell you, with the credit card companies, you always have to read the fine print. what you read this is remarkable. they are not even going to reduce the swipe fees for the eight months. what they are going to do is take the dollar value of that and roll it into the settlement. because there's nothing to change the structure of how they do things today, by the time the merchants actually get any of that money, swipe fees will have gone up by more than the amount of that money. me

after weeks of legal back and forth, the state's allowed to use a federal database to remove noncitizens from the voter rolls. critics say this process targets poor and minority voters. but florida's governor says it's going to help improve the election process. john zarrella reporting from miami. >> reporter: for months state of florida wrangling with the federal government over access to a federal database. now this federal database has lists of people who are in the country legally but not eligible to vote. well, over the weekend, florida and the department of homeland security finally arrived at an agreement which will allow florida access to that database so that it can go through and look for people in the state who probably shouldn't be on the voter rolls. now, governor rick scott said this morning on cnn that this was, in fact, an important step. >> i don't know anybody, any supervisor of election or anybody in the state thinks nonu.s. citizens ought to be voting our races. it's good for all of the citizens. >> reporter: officials will have to be trained on exactly how to use tha

the height of the violence in iraq during the u.s. occupation there. of course, the u.s. government frequently accused the damascus regime of doing that. he specifically singled out the brother-in-law of syrian president bashar al assad. he claims that the brother-in-law was running an al qaeda in iraq safe haven, safe house, on the syrian-iraqi border that was targeted by a u.s. cross-border military operation in october 2008. this defector ambassador claims he talk to the brother-in-law who was at that camp an hour after the u.s. troops targeted it, and that he was furious that it had been hit by u.s. forces. of course, we have not -- cannot get comment from the syrian government thus far about these claims, but the u.s. government was open about the fact that it targeted this camp in october of 2008, hitting what it claimed was an al qaeda in iraq militant. >> does this former ambassador believe that others from the regime will be defecting following his suit? >> well, he said that there are not many ambassadors left to defect because many of them have already been expelled from
i want to bring in ed lavandara who is joining us from centennial, colorado. ed, walk us through the charges that he is faced with. >> sure thing, suzanne. essentially, james holmes has been charged with 142 criminal counts. 24 counts of first-degree murder and 116 counts of attempted murder, and essentially, that is doubled up on the number of victims inside of that movie theater. remember, 12 people killed an 58 people who were wound and taken to hospitals. now the legal reason behind that according to the paperwork we have received is that they were able to file double the charges on each of those victims, because number one, prosecutors say it was a planned attack, and premeditated and also because james holmes showed an extreme indifference towards the people he was killing, and that is that he did not matter who he was killing, but shooting indiscriminantly into the movie theater. because off that, that gives them the legal basis to file double the counts against james holmes. there is also one count of possessing explosives and one count which is a sentence enhancer becaus
there's light, there's electricity, and there's a fan even. u.s. authorities have found 156 cross border tunnels since the early 1990s. lately they have become more sophisticated as technology above ground improves. >> the fbi has had this tunnel under surveillance since january. the way they discovered it is they picked up a truck that had 39 million dlrsz of amphetamine, they drinked it to this tunnel and they now have the suspects in custody. >>> big developing story out of washington, this concerns an alleged effort to export to iran certain items related to uranium enrichment. >> reporter: this is just kind of coming in to us right now and it's really fascinating when you look at how these networks that take nuclear material from the u.s. and then provide it overseas. two men have been indicted. a citizen of iran and a resident of china are being accused to try to obtain and illegally export these u.s. materials toer rang. and they're used to construct, operate and maintain gas center fudges. there was a statement that was released by lisa monaco. she's the assistant attorney

that had been evacuated. she explained to us the night of the shooting that there was loud music emerging from james holmes apartment and that she had gone up there to knock on the door and at one point had called authorities to let them know about that, but they said they were too busy with the shooting and they couldn't spare someone to come over here and do that, but she said the door was unlocked and told us the door was unlocked. obviously, she's very emotional about the fact she easily could have opened up that door and who knows what would have happened if she had done that. so luckily, for her, she decided not to do that and went back downstairs, but a lot of this area remains cordoned off and remains shut down. at one point, it would allow authorities to come back and james holmes' apartment, that will be shut down for quite some time and i'm not sure whether the surrounding areas will be opened up here in the coming days. obviously, the people whoive around this area are probably antsy to get back into their apartments and they'll be passing on developments about that and how th

in a meeting of cabinet ministers that was set off by remote control. u.s. defense secretary leon panetta reacted with this. >> the violence there has only gotten worse and the loss of life has only increased, which tells us that this is a situation that is rapidly spinning out of control. >> ivan watson joining us now. how do you react to exactly what leon panetta said with regard to spinning out of control and now the impact of assad's defense chief and brother-in-law being killed? >> well, the new noose is clear tightening. in one fell swoop at least four of his most senior security and defense officials killed by what syrian state media says was a suicide bombing. not only was the defense minister, the interior minister and a security adviser, but also as you mentioned a member of his inner circle, his family. his brother-in-law himself, assef shawkat. what's more important is aside from there having been incredible intelligence and security failure on the part of the top people in his security apparatus, at the same time you have had at least three days of fighting in the streets of
print and joins us now from dc. doug, you have said it is not the retailers or the consumers, but actually visa, mastercard and their banks that win out in this one. why is that? >> unfortunately, this agreement -- and i want to emphasize that it's not a done deal yet. this would allow visa and mastercard to keep fixing the fees, the banks not to compete and the fees to keep going up. we pay them now to the tune of $50 billion a year. and we just don't know it. unfortunately, that's going to continue if this gets pushed through. >> $50 billion a year. that is a number we don't hear very often. but the credit card companies agree to reduce the swipe fees for retailers for eight months. what else is included as part of this settlement? >> well, you have to read the fine print when you deal with credit card companies. and that's true here too. when you read the fine print, it's eye-opening. they're not going to reduce the fees even for the eight months. what they're going to do is give merchants the equivalent of that amount of cash and keep raising the fees. the cruel joke is b
to the battleground state. he stepped up his outsourcing attacks on romney. he used reports by tax notes to claims on romney wants to ship jobs overseas. >> we have not found any serious economic study that says governor romney's economic plan would create jobs until today. i've got to be honest. today we found out there's a new study out by nonpartisan economists that says governor romn romney's plan would create 800,000 jobs. there's one problem. the jobs wouldn't be in america. >> some of president advisors favor the idea as well. >>> we've got a lot more ahead this hour. take a look. >> we just pray that they are found and brougt back to their families. >> few leads but lots of questions over the disappearance of two iowa girls. they went for a back ride and vanished. >> i'm trying to stay positive and hope that god returns them to us safely. >> now the search for clues, anything to help find them. >>> those two americans taken hostage in egypt have been freed. find out how it went down. >>> later, living proof that perti pertistance pays off. how this man recovered his stolen car 42 years lat
glad you're with us on this saturday morning. i'm randi kaye. we're getting some shocking new information about the colorado theater shooting suspect james holmes. we've been hearing conflicting reports about a package that he allegedly sent to his psychiatrist before the shooting. cbs is reporting that package contained details about how he planned on killing people. now there's a legal battle over that package and whatever was inside it. jim spellman sounds the jail in aurora, kol california, for us this morning. good morning, jim. so what is this assertion of privilege that lawyers are talking about? >> so what the defense is saying is that the writings in this book were sent from holmes to his psychiatrist, a woman named dr. lynn fenton and that those are doctor-patient communications and should be privileged. it's a little complicated in general about how that works because if potentially there was something in it that alluded to putting people in danger, then the doctor would have to write to -- would have the requirement to report that to police. but we don't know what'
gergen is with us from cambridge, massachusetts. david, i don't believe it. i don't know. what do you think? if romney picked condoleezza rice would that not be a game changer? >> it sure would create a lot of buzz just as even the rumor has overnight. coming from matt drudge. you know, it's conventional wisdom within the political community that matt drudge has a direct line to one of mitt romney's top people matt rhodes who is very close in and drudge and rhodes are good friends. so all along drudge has had a pretty good take on it. when he came out and said conned -- condoleezza rice is at the top of the list everybody said wow. i thought this was off the table. look, i think it's more of a trial balloon than anything else. i'm in that camp. the romney people wanted to change the story and get away from bain and get on to other things. it's also true that they could stir things up and sort of put things up in the air and say, conservatives, are you willing to go with this or not? a lot of conservatives think condi rice is too close to george bush sr. and not enough of a foreign pol

over the weekend. meteorologist alexander steel tracking the weather for us. this isn't short-lived. >> no, poppy. first of all the breadth and depth of it we are talking 45 million people being impacted by it. also the degree to which we are breaking records. these records aren't just the hottest for the day or the month. they are the hottest records, hottest temperatures these places have ever seen ever anytime of year since records began in the 1800s. dodge city, kansas, 111. nashville, tennessee, 109. there were 140 all time records broken. over 1,900 records one way or another. of course, the heat exacerbated by what you were talking. straight line winds knocked out power from the virginias to ohio. the nighttime temperatures drop to the 70s and 80s only that causes the most problems. heat the number one weather related killer in the u.s. because of the nighttime temperatures. today's high is already 104 in atlanta, georgia. these were today's highs. tomorrow we will shave off a few degrees but it is negligible because the nighttime temperatures will stay so high. 97 in a

prevalent. at issue here is the excessive and unreasonable force used by police officers against residents of the u.s. commonwealth especially during peaceful demonstrations. now the report by the aclu follows a separate investigation from the u.s. department of justice that found, quote, prolonged and long standing abuse within the 17,000 member police department. that report found that between 2005 and 2010, 10% of puerto rico's police department was arrested on charges ranging from drug trafficking to murder. cnn spoke to the usdoj about the situation in puerto rico and they told us, quote, we are currently in settlement discussions with puerto rico concerning a durable remedy to address our findings. discussions have been productive and we hope to resolve our concerns without the need for litigation. in a recent interview with cnn, the island's lieutenant governor acknowledged that there is a problem within the police force. >> we are being a lot stronger in dealing with internal police discipline and that is something that is noteworthy and should be taken account of as a result of th
